Atlassian Jira Configuration Updates

New configuration checkbox under “RiskSense Defaults” called “Configure Priority Sync”. Once selected, the user can select a score metric, either VRR or Severity, and map it to the list of priority values from JIRA. Once this configuration is made, RiskSense will map scores from either VRR or Severity (based on user selection) to the Jira ticket’s priority.

  • If there is one finding per ticket, then priority will be set based on Finding’s VRR/Severity.

  • In case of more than one finding, the highest score is chosen and maps to the Jira ticket as priority.
